It doesn’t surprise me in the least. Also, there were some other rumors about Bernardin that probably wouldn’t surprise anyone here.
I am fully convinced that he was an evil person. Supposedly, he is the character celebrating the Black Mass in “Windswept House.”
All the other bishops consecrated by or associated with Bernardin (who himself was a “boy bishop,” one of the very young ones appointed by the nuncio for Paul VI at that time) spent their very lengthy careers trying to destroy or corrupt the Faith in the United States.
The war between good and evil is apparently being
waged everywhere, even in God’s house, it appears.
The forces of darkness are rising. Terrifying and
insidious. Keep praying. I’m convinced this chaos
and these calamitous time are simply too massive
and overwhelming for mere humans. Only God can
remedy the multitudes of horrendous crises.
